Britney Spears’ father James Spears has filed a petition in Los Angeles to end court stereotypes that have governed the singer’s life and wealth for 13 years. The stereotype was founded in 2008 when Britney began having a public mental struggle as media outlets obsess over the moment, hordes of paparazzi aggressively followed her everywhere and she lost custody of her children. Since the trial began, fans and celebrities have rallied in favor of Brittany, often protesting outside the courtroom and supporting on social media via the hashtag ‘Free Britney’.
Brittany’s lawyer in the case, Matthew Rosengart, called the development a “verification.” “This filing represents another legal victory for Britney Spears – in a big way – as well as retaliation for Spears,” Rosengart told CNN. “It appears that Mr. Spears believes he may be trying to evade accountability and justice, including sitting down for the oath and answering other searches under oath.”
James Spears was also the guardian of her person, looking after her health and medical issues until their separation in 2019. That’s when Jodie Montgomery was appointed temporary mentor. During a hearing in July, Britney Spears said she wanted to bring charges against her father for “stereotypical abuse” and called the arrangement “f-ing cruelty.”
Jamie Spears said in a previous court filing that he intends to step down as mentor.
